Yemen has been ravaged by years of war, which has claimed the lives of thousands. It has left millions more on the brink of famine and cholera is now spreading throughout the country at an alarming rate.

The aim of this conference is to bring attention to the current humanitarian crisis, explore how it came to be, and discuss what should be done. It will shed light on the situation on the ground, share insights from local perspectives and discuss the complicity of the wider international community.

Throughout the afternoon, internationally-renowned experts, including politicians, academics, and humanitarian actors, will present their thoughts on the situation in Yemen, each from a distinct perspective. In the evening there will be a screening of a documentary that offers a sobering glimpse into everyday life in the war-torn country.

We look forward to welcoming you.
